Quoting 
A series of uncoordinated mass stabbings, hammer attacks, and cleaver attacks in Chinese school between March 2010 and late 2012 left at least 25 dead and some 115 injured.

I have been thinking about trying to catch that "falling knife" known as the price of oil, now down to 27.62 AH for WTI.

But I am gradually deciding that is a great way to...............GET STABBED!

And if a lot of people try to catch that "falling knife", it could result in a financial "mass stabbing."


Howard Gold article
T. Rowe Price New Era’s Shawn Driscoll says the price for a barrel of oil could drop into the teens

Fund manager who?s been right on oil has a depressing new prediction - MarketWatch

This guy's column, Howard Gold, has been has been right on the price of oil for the last 6 months i.e. calling it down, down, down!

He called it on May 6, 2015, going down to the 30s, when it was $62 a barrel.


Howard Gold article May 6, 2015
Oil in the $30s? It may happen as a ‘short squeeze’ ends

Oil in the $30s? It may happen as a ?short squeeze? ends - MarketWatch

And now Howard Gold seems to think that the price of oil may be heading for the "teens!"

And that may go for the price of oil companies too.....also going down, down, down.

In the last year, Chesapeake (CHK) down from 21 to 3, Continental (CLR) down from 53 to 16, and even Exxon (XOM) down from 93 to 76.

But nobody knows for sure and there's always the chance of some kind of BLACK SWAN event in the ME where there are a whole lot of wars and hostility around a whole lot of oil.

But all I know is that Howard Gold has been DEAD ON about the price of oil for the last 6 months.

And those "good looking deals" on oil and oil stocks may not look so good after all.

So, I'd say......FADE Howard Gold AT YOUR OWN RISK...... of getting STABBED by that "falling knife!"

But, on the other hand, oil and oil stocks may be the BUY OF A LIFETIME!

Who knows?

I sure don't!

Edit: And the head of CLR says oil will be $60 by the end of the year.

Quoting 
Pakistan attack raises tough question: should teachers shoot back?

....four Islamist militants attacked Bacha Khan University in Pakistan's troubled northwest on Wednesday, killing more than 20 people.

"I was worried about the students, and then one of the militants came after us," Shakil added. "After repeated requests, the police threw me a pistol and I fired some shots at the terrorists."....

Some hailed them as heroes, as the country digested an attack which bore similarities to the massacre, in late 2014, of 134 pupils at an army-run school in Peshawar, about 30 km (19 miles) from where this week's violence occurred.

Others questioned whether teachers should be armed, as many are, because it goes against the ideals of the profession.

Should teachers shoot back at terrorists?

Why not?

Teachers shouldn't have to run and hide and cower for their life.

Sounds to me like a bunch of dang...................DEMOCRATS!

Yep and that may have had something to do with the big bounce in oil today.

Saudi Air Strikes on Yemeni Oil Port; ISIS Attacks Libyan Oil Port

Saudi Air Strikes on Yemeni Oil Port; ISIS Attacks Libyan Oil Port | OilPrice.com

Hitting petroleum trucks and a pipeline to a port that has been closed since 2014.


Quoting 
Saudi Arabia launched airstrikes on targets in Yemen on Thursday, killing nine people and destroying trucks that deliver petroleum products for domestic consumption.......

ISIS also targeted oil pipelines that travel from the Amal oilfield to the port of Es Sider, which is located near Ras Lanuf..........The ports of Ras Lanuf and Es Sider have been offline since late 2014.

So it looks like a phony bounce to me.

But who knows?

That clown is obviously not familiar with guns when he refers to "M-16 machine guns.

And I highly doubt he is a military veteran since he wears make up, eye shadow, and lipstick.

And I doubt that clown has ever picked up a gun much less fired one because he is.........SCARED TO DEATH OF GUNS!

Like most people who do not support the right to keep and bear arms.

Guns are inanimate objects and are not inherently good or bad.

It all depends on how they are used.

Four killed in Saskatchewan school shooting

Four people are dead and others are injured after a shooting in Saskatchewan, Canada, that included gunfire at a high school, police and a witness said. A suspect is in custody, police said.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau earlier told reporters in Davos, Switzerland, that five were killed. Royal Canadian Mounted Police Chief Superintendent Maureen Levy blamed the earlier report of five deaths on a developing situation, and said four deaths are confirmed.

I wonder how many gun control laws that guy broke.


Grodon 1/17
Canada is having a correction, particularly in oil producing Alberta. ......

But the criminals and terrorists don't have any "restricted firearms" and they'll just steal the container for the "stored" guns.

Another great example of why gun control only effects law abiding citizens.

And another slaughter in a "gun free zone" which means "free kill zone."


Quoting 
The legality of self-defence with the use of a firearm has been controversial in Canada, as many gun owners who had used their firearms against intruders found themselves getting charged with storage violations and homicide...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overview_of_gun_laws_by_nation

In Canada, it may be better to let yourself be killed than to shoot back.

That way you won't get charged with violating any gun control laws!

Intellectual and emotional tone-deaf fantasist man-child


Or just a child, as with many mass shooters. Reach for your quick answer, not a man`s answer.

A lack of empathy does not necessarily stem from inherent rudeness. Even kind, well-intentioned mentally healthy person can lack empathy sometimes. Empathy is simply a learned skill that some people practice more often than others.

Back to something approximating relevant to the topic of this thread:

Why Mass Shootings Keep Happening
Are we helpless to stop mass shootings? Is anyone even trying to stop them? The good news is that the answers are No and Yes. The bad news: The person loading up hasn't gotten the news.
"

Extract from long article..Edit: with Andre Simons (video link), Unit Chief at Behavioral Analysis Unit, FBI ' (if paywalled, google a few lines so google is referrer).

"What these people need," says Andre Simons, "are alternatives to violence. They are often unable or unwilling to articulate to themselves that there are alternatives to violence. They have shut that door. Our job is to open other doors for them so that they don't go through the last door they think they have left."

"The people who do these things are not fully functioning adults—we're all manchildren," says the manchild who once led two other manchildren down the street dressed in black and armed with machetes and military-grade weapons. "All of the authority in the world won't help that kid. What they'll do is just ostracize him even more. What he wants is for someone to accept him for who he is."

It is another place where the former threat and the threat-assessment professional find themselves in agreement—where the former threat begins to sound like a threat-assessment professional. At this very moment in America, someone, probably but not necessarily a man, is arming himself and planning to kill as many people as possible in a public spectacle. That is a matter of certainty. Can he be stopped? Yes—but that is almost a matter of faith. He can be stopped if he can be identified. He can be stopped if he can be assessed. He can be stopped if he can be managed. He can be stopped if both Andre Simons and a young man nicknamed Trunk Full of Guns get what they want—if someone sees him, someone notices him, someone wonders who he is and what he's doing, even if he's anonymous, even if he's just walking to a bus stop in the rain."
